  • Double Corks Comin’ Down Copper’s Pipe

    on December 14 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    The second Olympic qualifying event at a CSCUSA resort took place this past weekend. I had the chance to watch some of the USSA Grand Prix at Copper Mountain on Friday. If you ever have the chance to watch a snowboard competition from the lip of the halfpipe, do it. It is from this perspective that the unbelievable athleticism, talent and skills of the riders can really be seen. Not only does this perspective give appreciation to the athletes, but also the terrain. A 22 foot halfpipe is steep, icy, hard, and takes precision to sculpt – which is why it is called a superpipe.

    Colorado is in a cold snap. The temperature at my house this morning was, count ‘em, one, two, three…three degrees. But while some folks may be cursing the cold (like those who don’t have access to the world’s best ski resorts) Colorado’s ski area operators are smiling as the cold snap brings powder to the people.

    Instead of #Follow Friday, today is 50 Free Things Friday. This seems to be the year of value as skiers and riders are on the hunt to get the best bang for their buck.

    Ski it Forward With the constant talk about the economy these days, it can be hard to remember to appreciate all that we have. It’s Thanksgiving weekend and here in Colorado, by the end of the holiday, Ski Country will have 14 resorts open for the season – there’s 14 causes for optimism and appreciation right there.Telluride 1

    In the spirit of giving thanks, we asked the CSCUSA staff and member resorts what they are most thankful for this holiday weekend. ‘Course we’re all thankful for snow and powder days, that goes with out saying, but we found that it’s the little things, the dedication of guests and sport introductions that really stick with us.

  • Beware the Warren Effect

    on November 6 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    Beware the Warren Effect. I have a hunch I’m not the only person in the world who after they saw the movie Rocky was so pumped that she attempted to jog home from the movie theater. In fact I know I’m not the only one because my friend Amy was with me and I think it was her mom we called to come get us.  Some movies just have that effect.

    Warren Miller’s Dynasty is touring through Colorado right now. I’d been hearing the industry buzz about it for months, I’d seen the trailer online, and Ski Country even helped with some of the logistics for the film crew.
